Abstract

Trimming aircraft on the ground is an absolutely necessary for flight simulators. In order to carry out this task, the aircraft-runway dynamic model is analyzed, and then an elite re-optimized hybrid genetic algorithm for trimming the model is designed, which combines the merits of a genetic algorithm and pattern search. It does not only avoid being trapped by a local optimum, but also improves the precision of results and saves on the time for trimming. Because this trim method requires only in-out information of the dynamic model, it is a universal tool and can be used on different trim works of different simulated aircraft. Its efficiency is then validated in a flight simulator, which reveals its engineering significance.
